SOLAR 21 lights up World Climate Solutions in Copenhagen

14.09.2010
In partnership with the Ecole Centrale, in Paris, Edgar Hardy, CEO of Solar 21, has developed Mona, an LED solar light which can be used in both domestic and commercial premises. The Mona light, which is portable, wireless, lightweight, easy to use, and capable of lighting a room of 15m², will be showcased at the World Climate Solutions trade show in Copenhagen (Denmark) from 29 September to 30 September 2010.

After less than six hours of charging in direct sunlight, the Mona solar light, developed by Solar 21, can produce light for up to five hours. Using new LED power technology and photovoltaic panels, this environmentally friendly light guarantees dense interior lighting. The Mona solar light will be showcased at the World Climate Solutions trade fair in Copenhagen at the end of September.


While traditional solar lights for external use are often viewed as markers rather than lighting appliances, this product, which is intended for internal use, completely transforms the notion of wireless lighting inside the home. Besides, the Mona solar light resists high temperatures and is fitted with an integrated mobile-telephone charger. It also comes in a convenient compact case.

The Mona solar light has been designed in response to a vital need from countries whose populations are affected by irregular power supply. With 1.7 billion people in the world still deprived of access to the electricity grid, this clean and effective solar light offers a genuine, practical and lasting solution.

Solar 21 was set up by Edgar Hardy, who himself originally comes from Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, in Central Africa. This invention marks a big step forward for the African continent, whose populations often do not enjoy the benefit of reliable private lighting.

Edgar Hardy, who studied at Ecole Centrale, the prestigious school of engineering based in Paris (France), is now looking for partners with an approach similar to his, in order to ensure that the Mona solar light develops into a lasting solution in Africa, in Europe, and across the globe. Indeed, Solar 21 intends to become the leading manufacturer and distributor of clean lighting products across the African continent.

A full specification sheet for the Mona solar light has been reproduced at the bottom of this press release.

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
